Beyond Beijing: Liberalization and the Regions in China (review)

Beyond Beijing: Liberalization and the Regions in China (review) Dali Yang. Beyond Beijing: Liberalization and the Regions in China. London and New York: Routledge, 1997. xi, 199 pp. Hardcover $65.00, ISBN 0­415­ 14501­5. In Beyond Beijing, Dali Yang provides a carefully grounded study of the regional dimensions of economic change and public policy in contemporary China. The book focuses on the causes and consequences of the growing disparities between the coastal and the interior provinces in China since the advent of economic reform in the late 1970s. The result is a theoretically informed and empirically based analysis that illuminates the economic logic and causal dynamics of regional development, market formation, and power relations in post-Mao China. The book begins with an overview of changes in China's regional development policies and practices, from the policies of Mao Zedong, which sought to correct the inherited uneven development between coast and interior by targeting the inland areas for a large share of the nation's industrial investment, to the coastal development strategy of Deng Xiaoping.
